We appreciate the support of Dennis Keegan and Laurent Carrier for their continued interest in supporting young musicians as they work, practice, and dream of playing music. This year, we had several members step up and grow the Young Soloist Competition and we now add Dr. Victor and Mary Thacker, Alice Marie Thomas and Marilyn Miller to the roster of supporters of our Young Solo Artist competition.
